Agadir, Morocco


Agadir, Morocco.

Why now?

With 300 days of sunshine a year, Agadir is a solid bet for
kissing goodbye to the winter months with a city-beach break. The
crescent-shaped promenade is the liveliest part of town, perfect
for people-watching over fresh seafood or a hearty tajine, though
the city itself is also well worth a wander. Explore the souks and
Agadir’s popular Sunday market, and be sure to pencil in the time
to visit the town’s Kasbah, which dates back to 1541.

Don’t miss…

If you want to do more with your beach time, book a couple of
days at Blue Waves Surf House in
Agadir’s Anza neighbourhood. Oceanfront rooms can be shared
hostel-style or booked privately, and the camp offers surf lessons
from noob to expert.

The city is bookended by the Atlantic and the Anti-Atlas
Mountains (a slightly less intimidating range than the Atlas
Mountains) which are popular among trekkers. Book a guide and head
out to the hills for a leg workout between beach sessions – you’ll
be rewarded with spectacular views of the Sahara
